Forget little monsters: this year, Lady Gaga is recruiting little elves.

The stylish star is collaborating with Barneys New York to create the Gaga Workshop, a holiday campaign driven by the pop icon’s personal take on Santa’s workshop. The entire fifth floor of New York’s iconic Madison Avenue Barneys store (plus the building’s street-level windows) will be decorated with her whimsical creations, made with the help of Mugler creative director (and friend) Nicola Formichetti and artists from Assume Vivid Astro Focus.

According to WWD, the fifth floor will also be filled with limited-edition gift items developed by Gaga; from candies and toys to apparel, accessories, candles and cosmetics, the shop will feature a range of stocking-stuffer items as well as books and CDs hand-picked by the singer. And, in true Gaga style, expect to find some exceptionally unique items like jewelry made entirely of rock candy, lipsticks in special red and pink hues, lip-shaped, hand-painted dark chocolate and an exclusive Rubik’s Cube. Barneys will donate 25 percent of sales from items in the workshop to the charity of Gaga’s choice, too.

The workshop opens in mid-November and runs through Jan. 2, giving you plenty of time to stock up on stocking stuffers (select items will be available on, too). After all, nothing says Christmas like some outrageous Gaga-made gear. Tell us: Will you buy your stocking stuffers at Gaga’s Workshop?
